  • Gas Turbines & Propulsion
  • Power Systems & Turbines


Dr Ioannis Roumeliotis joined the Cranfield University Centre for Propulsion Engineering in 2017 getting the opportunity to expand his research in thermal management systems and systems integration. Currently he is a Senior Lecturer in Gas Turbine Propulsion & Thermal Systems Integration.

Prior to joining Cranfield University he was an Assistant Professor (Tenure) for marine gas turbines and simulation methods at the Hellenic Naval Academy and Senior Research Fellow at the Laboratory of Thermal Turbomachines (LTT) of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). Ioannis as part of the LTT/NTUA research team participated as a key researcher in five European Committee funded projects, including VIVACE, NEWAC and CRESCENDO, and eight industry funded projects relevant to gas turbine modelling, monitoring and fault diagnosis.

Ioannis holds a PhD in Turbomachinery (full scholarship), a MSE in Automation Systems and a five years diploma degree (MEng) in Mechanical Engineering, all from the National Technical University of Athens.

He has 21 publications in leading journals in the areas of gas turbine propulsion and energy and more than 30 fully peer-reviewed conference papers. He has received several distinctions for his research including the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Cycle Innovations Committee Best Paper Award for 2012.

Current activities

Ioannis research interests include modelling and assessment of gas turbine configurations (existing and novel), consistent physical modelling of gas turbines utilising multi-disciplinary and multi-fidelity methods, steady state and dynamic simulation of engine and engine systems and gas turbine operation and performance monitoring.

Currently he conducts research in the field of integrated thermal management systems in the frame of projects PINES (Powerplant Integration of Novel Engine Systems) and LH2GT lead by Rolls-Royce, he supports the Cranfield University Rolls-Royce UTC Aero Systems Design, Integration & Performance activities in gas turbine simulation, novel cycles and thermal management and he collaborates with Siemens Digital Industries Software in gas turbines modeling and in simulating integrated propulsion systems.
